What i Wore in - Venice !

Nothing makes me more happier than sharing this promised post with you today! I have kept you waiting for so long i know.The lovely Mediterranean vacation, will be shared in bits in each post starting today. Believe me, the most difficult task is to pick 5-6 pics out of the 100s that i would love to share.Challenge accepted!This post is about what i wore in one of my favorite cities, Venice which is a group of islands. You can see Venice City, Murano Island & Burano Island in this post. This post is one of the most colorful ones ever! Weather forecasts went haywire but i pulled out the best possible clothes that would cover me head to toe leading to what you see , a melange of vibrant shades !In my next post on Venice, I will share what i captured especially for TFMQ readers on my lense !

The picture was taken at the St Mark's Campanile, the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica in Venice. Stands around 100 meters tall, Venice's largest bell tower has been the inspiration for several other towers across Europe and North America.

Burano island encompasses a series of small, brightly painted houses. The colors of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development. Probably the only place on the earth where if someone wishes to paint their home, one must get the approval from the government
MURANO- the island of Glass factories

The cute furball at Burano Island

Murano Island, famous for glass-making, is the most popular island to visit. A few centuries ago, all glass makers were required to live on the island to protect the glass-making secrets. Today the tradition of glass making continues here . Some glass factories allow visitors or tours and there are many shops selling glass creations and souvenirs.

Behind us, you see the The Bridge of Sighs. The enclosed bridge is part of the famous Doge Palace, made of white limestone and has windows with stone bars. It connects the New Prison to the interrogation rooms in the palace. The view from the Bridge of Sighs was the last view of Venice that convicts saw before their imprisonment!!!

MAY Wish-list 2013

Hello pretty people!
I spend so much time browsing for things i want or things that i would want to have. In my mind, I make so many wishlists, dream about them & forget about them , once i spot a new set of things!
This time, i thought i should share it with you. If you would like to see more such wishlists in future, drop your thoughts in the comment box !

When i completed this collage , i realized  visually my wishlist looks very tempting. And imagine, i have left behind around a 100 things that still occupy my mental wish-list!

1. Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 Venetian sandals

Too much to ask for , i know! But i just can't take my eyes off these floral heels.They spell summer so loud! Its like carrying a piece of art with each step. The Dolce & Gabbana 2013 Fall collection is inspired by Venetian & Byzantine art. When i came back from my dreamy vacation in Italy, i saw this collection & instantly felt connected.It reminds me of the beautiful cathedrals in Italy.The entire collection is a must-watch. If you find a full video, do share!

2. OPI On Collins Avenue

This hot coral red could be every girl's summer companion. Blue beaches, a white summer dress & OPI on collins Ave- A perfect summer, I say!
This shade is universal.It will compliment every skin tone .

3.REVLON Just bitten kissable balm stain in Honey 

Not again, you might say! Isn't every other girl on the blog-planet going ga-ga over this invention!
Join the gang! I already had a bright pink from this collection called- LOVESICK. The best part about these stains is that they actually stain & evenly so! No blotches & no settling in ridges.Long-lasting unlike others who falsely claim so! I saw many online swatches of the shade honey . It is an everyday my-lips-but-better(MLBB) shade! You ask me why a red doesn't feature here? Well, I am so content with my Bourjois So delicate lip cream in Rouge Chic that i can only think of adding nudes now.Sadly, all online stores are OUT OF STOCK.I need to hunt down this shade SOON!

4. Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15- evens & corrects

I don't use a foundation This product caught my attention at just about every station terminal in Italy.They had the advertorial running in loops.And then i see a lady walking with a newly bought product from the counter at the airport. I checked the prices & boom, i retraced my steps to the waiting lounge :)
I think India pricing would be better.So , this is a foundation with benefits of a skin spots corrector, SPF 15 & is developed by dermatologists. Above all, its oil-free. I wish i get some samples to try before i take the plunge!

See the video here.Infact the website says, this should be followed by a Spot corrector serum.See that video too !

5. Paradise Eau De Parfum By ORIFLAME

Look at the bottle & you will know why its on my wish-list.The name Paradise, fools me into believing it is the perfume of the Fashion Gods! The poster clearly depicts it as the perfect perfume for the fashionistas! Bohemian & every bit glamorous, this one has to be given a try!Do i hear, soon?

Luxury find- Nyassa Vanilla Dry Fruit Luxury Bar

Hello Dear Readers,
You know my internet connection has gone for a toss & with my data card I can only do text-heavy posts. 
I have been using the Nyassa Vanilla Dry fruit Luxury bar for the last 3 days and I am in awe!

Let me tell you why I could't wait to share this find with you:

1)  It stays true to its name- There is vanilla, there are those bits of dry fruits(real figs, cashews, almonds and pistachaio) & one look at it, it fools you into believing its a chunk of malaidaar mithai :) A luxury bar indeed!

2) One bath & you will know -ingredients listed on it are for REAL - (Sweet almond oil, wheat germ oil, shea butter, vitamin E, Grape seed, Aloe vera extract, vanilla fragrance & dry fruit  )

3) A creamy lather that doesn't feel artificial & a fragrance you would fall for .Its difficult to resist the urge to bite into it !

The one I tried was a sample in my VELLVETTE box. This soap is available on VELLVETTE website for purchase.I am a sucker for bath & body products and love to constantly fill my bathroom racks with new indulgence.This surely is a treat & at a price tag of Rs.400 for 150 gm , its an expensive one for sure!

In my recent trip to Istanbul ( posts coming up; just pray my internet connection is restored soon)  ,I bought a lovely pomegranate handmade soap which smells as divine.But even that wasn't as expensive as Nyassa. So people at Nyassa, you must make a note!

 Turkey is famous for its turkish baths ( Hammam) and hence the bath products are made with a lot of love too.More in my post on Turkish bath products later!

JUST ONE THING- I want the price to go down!!! It MUST!!! 
A thing of beauty has to be enjoyed by the masses :) NO? So dear Nyassa team , kindly listen to this mass appeal :)

A few more reviews lined up, till my wireman does the repairs !
Till next time, see you !

Denimize the world with ONLY INDIA

A sweet summery hello to all my dear readers after a long long break!
You know how much i love the 2 denim waists i have from ONLY India styled in these posts- 1,2,3
I was invited by  ONLY India to style a look featuring their latest denim collection.(yayieeeee!!!) The entire collection experiments with styles, textures, prints & shapes. From the thinnest denim ever ( promises to keep you looking cool as well as feeling cool) to Americana star print jeans, they have it all! 
If you would also like to try your skills as a stylist , don't forget to enter the contest on their FB page here.Yes, you get to play a virtual stylist! This is one of the most fun contests ever, girls!
Keep up with the ONLY fun on their FB page here.

About the look i created ( Sorry for the typo here, you know its ILA ;) ) , Spring/summer makes me go blindly after florals . I chose the floral denim pair over the regular blue denims.These are easy to carry as the print is very delicate & feminine.Keeping in tune with the flavor of summer,i picked up neon accessories for a touch of LIME :)
The look also caters to a slightly cold weather by addition of a pastel cardigan which is very airy as well.
A tan leather bag & you balance the feminine accents in this look.Would you try this look?
